EmmanuelStarchild: I have a 35mm and 50mm prime lens. No need for this.
I only have the 35mm, so......I need this somewhat?
ENicolas: Does it come with a piece of black tape to fix the light leak from the top LCD?
Sorry black tapes cannot be downloaded off the internet, silly
Hugo808: Why don't manafacturers finish their cameras before selling them?
(sarcasm) Why don't photographers finish their pictures after shooting them? Why do they need to do post processing?
Reading through the comments, I don't notice any current 24-70 owner planning to upgrade to the mark II. I wonder how this lens will sell when it gets released...
AbrasiveReducer: It's funny that when Nikon came out with their 16-35 VR all the "pros" said who needs IS/VR in a wide angle? I can hand hold for 20 seconds with no problem. I agree, it's a mystery why you wouldn't want it in a 24-70. I also wonder how much worse IS would be if it was in the body, which would address the size, cost and weight issues.
I can also handhold for 20 seconds, have no problem, have no usable picture either!
Bill Dusterwald: IS on a wideangle? Maybe if you parkinsons disease. I hand hold 24 down to 1/10 a second with no problem.
IS on wide is more targeted to video people.
TheCameraStore in Calgary has just posted a video of a pre production version of this camera. Check it out
ezradja: Here's an idea for Nikon and Canon, why don't you just remove mirror on your already established DSLR design (with the old lens mount), shrink the camera and make it retro look, and BOOM, shock the photographic market and the stock market. :)
Not buying it, sorry.
